Nothing Without Us: The Women Who Will End AIDS
A film by Harriet Hirshorn
2017, 67 minutes, Color, DVD
Order No. W171219

NOTHING WITHOUT US tells the inspiring story of the vital role that women have played - and continue to play - in the global fight against HIV/AIDS. Combining archival footage and interviews with female activists, scientists and scholars in the US and Africa, Nothing Without Us reveals how women not only shaped grassroots groups like ACT-UP in the U.S., but have also played an essential part in HIV prevention and treatment access throughout sub-Saharan Africa. From beauty parlors in Baton Rouge to the first HIV clinic in Burundi, this film looks boldly at the unaddressed dynamics that keep women around the world at high-risk for HIV, while introducing the remarkable women who have the answers to ending this 30-year old pandemic. As the history of AIDS activism is being written, women, particularly women of color, are being written out of it. This documentary will be a step in restoring women's crucial role in the history and present-day activism around HIV as well as bolstering the work of women everywhere still fighting for their lives.

    International Documentary Association

    "An utterly necessary and beautiful chronicle of women’s activism, imagined and led by Black women, to render themselves, their risk, and their needs visible in the global HIV and AIDS pandemic and public health responses to it. A must-see film for anyone interested in understanding what it means for women to be healthy."
